While some in the industry may find this video offensive as it offers a negative perspective of real estate agents, it was put on the Real Estate Section's listserve from the NY Bar Association to illustrate the misnomer that a modification application stops foreclosure. Simply put - It does NOT!!!
Homeowners must be made aware that the only thing that stops a foreclosure is a written modification agreement coupled with a discontinuance of the foreclosure action. Hopefully all industry players can come together to educate homeowners on this important fact.
